Strict Requirements Needed to Earn the Toyota CPO Badge

One of the several benefits of Toyota Certified Pre-Owned models is that only a select few can be classified as certified pre-owned. That’s because Toyota has a strict set of criteria that must be met before it earns the CPO badge.

In order to be eligible for the CPO program, the Toyota vehicle must first be less than six years old and have less than 85,000 miles.

But that’s not all! Only after passing a 160-point inspection will the Toyota be considered a certified pre-owned model. This inspection checks all aspects of the model to assure the highest quality possible. Areas checked include:

  • Engine and mechanical components
  • Audio and multimedia features
  • Exterior appearance

If you’re purchasing a CPO hybrid model, additional tests are performed to check its hybrid capabilities, adding an additional 14 checks.

Benefits of Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Models: Extensive Warranty Coverage

Another benefit to purchasing a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned model is the warranty coverage that comes with your new-to-you ride. Three warranties, in particular, you’re sure to love:

  • 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Warranty: Beginning the date of purchase, this warranty covers your vehicle in case there are any repairs needed that fall outside of normal use.
  • 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty: In the event repairs must be done to the engine, transmission, or other internally lubricated parts, this warranty has you covered. In addition to repairs, you can also receive lodging and meal reimbursement under certain conditions, as well as receive a loaner vehicle while your model is getting repaired.
  • 7-year/100,000-mile 24-hour Roadside Assistance: Anytime, anywhere, receive assistance with flat tires, jump-starts, towing, and more, under this warranty coverage.

Thanks to the extensive warranty coverage offered with Toyota CPO models, you can rest assured your vehicle can be by your side for years to come.

Extra Perks Offered with CPO Toyota Models

If these benefits aren’t enough for you, you’ll be happy to know that certified pre-owned Toyota models come with several additional benefits. For example, a complimentary CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ is included.

These reports provide an in-depth look into maintenance and ownership history of the model you’re eyeing up. That way, you know how many individuals previously owned your car, how long they owned it, and what maintenance was performed and when.

On top of all these CPO benefits, depending on the model year you also gain access to all the Toyota features you know and love. For example, travel the town knowing Toyota Safety Sense™ has your back, or play your favorite songs through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™.
